Åkanten (riverside in Swedish) is nicely set right in the middle of town with the church and university building right next to it. The ambience in the outside lounge area is really great regardless if you come here for lunch (as we did) or an...More

We came here for a drink in the afternoon. The location at the waterfront is great and the place looks awesome with its loungebanks. The service was very poor though, we were ignored by the waiters and ended up ordering our drinks at the bar...More
